I was shocked to hear my 6 yr. old tell me recently that she thinks her thighs are fat compared to other girls. She seems so young to notice such things! And we keep a media-free home, I thought she would be spared any body angst. The thing is, she is about nearly 48" tall and 50 lbs. Her best friend is maybe 1/4 inch taller, but thinner looking - appears to have no baby fat left. (her parents are both 6 feet tall). My dh and I are shorter - I am 5' 2", my dh 5' 8". dh is also stocky & dd takes after him. And the thigh issue - she has more weight there, what looks like baby fat to me, which seems fine to me - including a dimpled bottom and upper thighs in the back. So now that I've noticed this, I'm second -guessing myself - I'm wondering if this is "normal" for her age or should she be trimming down by now - is the dimpling cellulite? She could be a bit more active, she tends to prefer reading books to breaking a sweat (doesn't like bike-riding, etc). Anyway, I wonder if I should be getting her more active. She doesn't overeat and we never buy junk food or many sweets, no juice. I tell her she is beautiful just as she is and everyone "jiggles" a bit, as she says, but possibly I'm neglecting fitness.
